Prepare for a trip down the rabbit hole as Robert Lamb, Joe McCormick and Christian Sager lead you on a scientific journey to the very limits of human understanding. “Stuff to Blow Your Mind” examines neurological quandaries, cosmic mysteries, evolutionary marvels and the technological underpinnings of our transhuman future.
Meet the Hosts
Robert Lamb is a senior writer and host at HowStuffWorks, where he co-hosts Stuff to Blow Your Mind. An avid science enthusiast, he boasts a deep love for monsters and a hankering for electronic music. Robert joined the HSW team in 2008 and continues to write a wide variety of educational and entertaining content, from "How Math Works" to "Top 10 Evil Spaceships." In his free time, he writes weird fiction in flavors southern, sci-fi and horror. He resides in Atlanta with his lovely wife, their exuberant son and an insane calico cat named Mochi.
Joe McCormick is a writer and publisher with HowStuffWorks, an excitable amateur science enthusiast, a lay interrogator of technology, a prolific generator of ideas for science fiction novels he does not have time to write, and a criminal in the court of thermodynamics. Once when he was a kid, his supremely kind and generous grandmother let him crack open an old thermostat so he could get at the mercury switch. He is still grateful for this experience.
Christian Sager is a writer and host at HowStuffWorks where he has worked on Stuff To Blow Your Mind, BrainStuff and Stuff of Genius. When he's not exploring eldritch knowledge he writes comic books about demonic children and arctic horror. He lives in Atlanta with his wife and pets. Christian relaxes by practicing yoga to the most brutal of metal.

What Came Before
"Stuff to Blow Your Mind" began life in January 2010 as "Stuff From the Science Lab," hosted by HSW Science Writer Robert Lamb and HSW Science Editor Allison Loudermilk. Later that Year, Julie Douglas joined the team and co-hosted the re-branded STBYM podcast with Robert until her departure in June 2015. That's when Joe McCormick and Christian Sager came aboard.
